Leeds United and Liverpool players are delighted with Burnley’s promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.

Leeds United attacker Stuart Dallas has taken to social networking site Twitter to congratulate Burnley duo James Tarkowski and Andre Gray on winning automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Burnley got the better of Queens Park Rangers 1-0 at Turf Moor on Monday evening to confirm their place in the top two of the Championship.

Meanwhile, Burnley midfielder Joey Barton has suggested on Twitter that he and his teammates are not done yet, as they will aim to win the Championship title.

Burnley will take on Charlton Athletic away from home at The Valley in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
